Ritual Theatre with Lorca Simons
and 5RYTHMS® DJ Tom R. Schulz
Poland, Krakow, June 2-5, 2016

An investigation of soul
through the body

The unravelling - the revealing tale of the feet, the hips, the head, the hands and the breath - an unveiling of the truths discovered through the 5Rhythms, one body part at a time. A single thread is cast through space, invoking emptiness - a basket is placed full of blank pages, waiting for whispers and entrances. We will write, wonder and weather our way through light and shadow, footfalls and silences creating the Ritual Theatre of your/our stories detailed soulfulness. Furious dancing, mysterious humor and indelible visuals may occur.

Combining the embodiment practice of the 5Rhythms together with the ritual theatre work that Lorca and Gabrielle developed over last 20 years and bringing together physical gesture, story line and ritual. This is not about acting, it is about expanding your imagination and deepening your self-expression and the physical articulation of your body through theatrical action, seeking what is most alive.

Prerequisites: at least one weekend of 5Rhythms study or equivalent.
